Comillas Pontifical University private degree in collaboration with the International School of Psychomotricity (EIPS)
The Specialist Degree program in Psychomotricity is jointly organized by the Institute of Educational Science (ICE) and specialists from the International School of Psychomotricity (EIPS), combining the excellence, quality and virtues of Comillas Pontifical University and the rigor and experience of the foremost school in psychomotricity training in Spain.
The primary objective of this private degree is to train professionals in the practice of psychomotricity, using an approach that is theoretical as well as practical and experienced-based, in a field in which the social and work related demands are increasing. To this end, Comillas and the EIPS are committed to providing top quality education to future psychomotor specialists.
For this, sound theoretical and practical training is offered. Additionally, students will prepare an individual project in applied psychomotricity. The training is conducted in groups, which allows an in-depth personalized training and individual supervision of the students' progress throughout the ten months of the course.
Educators, psychologists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, physiotherapists, physical education teachers, nurses, lecturers, doctors, social workers and all people interested in the psychomotor profession and who fulfill the admission requirements.
One academic year. 250 academic hours (135 face-to-face hours and 115 distance learning hours).
Face-to-face training takes place on one weekend per month.
Distance learning is done through supervised theoretical and practical work and is guided at all times by the school's professionals.
Theory classes are given at EIPS, Avenida del Doctor García Tapia, 126, Madrid.
The learning process is based on three complementary areas which are addressed simultaneously throughout the training period:
The use of psychomotor techniques that allow the intervention of different professionals to favor the psychological development in subjects of different ages through movement and the body game.
It is done through direct observation of psychomotor sessions performed by students; and through the analysis of videos of psychomotor sessions shown by trainers. This technique allows the integration and consolidation of experiential and theoretical training applicable to the differing difficulties and ages.
Psychomotor observation includes being involved in psychomotor intervention and the supervision and guidance for monitoring cases. The final project consists of developing sustained memory in an individual psychomotor intervention case, preferably in the student's workplace or any other freely-chosen institution.
The presentation and analysis of the main cognitive-emotional theories that the psychomotor interventions are based upon which are encountered in the sessions that students are part of.
The aim is to deepen the methodological basis needed for the implementation of the psychomotor practice in different groups.
Personal project with aim of investigating, by the future psychomotor specialist, body awareness and its relationship with psychomotor development. Carried out in:
